Craft Days owner Jane Shaw was presented with her framed certificate and four tickets to see Robin Hood at Saffron Hall at Christmas.

Jane said she made most of the items in her window display. Tutor Sally Rainbird helped her to put the window together and helped with the binding on the quilt, and tutor Ella Hutchinson made the tea cosy.
